Eight Lessons and Carols for Godless People is a show that was on for a few nights recently where comedian and rationalist, Robin Ince rounded up the best of the best to talk, sing and joke about various topics pertaining to science, philosophy and good old fashioned god-denying atheism.
The acts (?) included Ricky Gervais, Stewart Lee, Richard Dawkins (!), Dara O'Briain, a recording of Carl Sagan, Simon Singh and Tim Minchin, to name but a few.
In other news, Richard Dawkins has funded a run of atheist bus ads. The ad reads:
"There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.
Just take a look yourself:
